Hey there

im a bit of a panic, leaving for oz in 2 day just realised when printing my details that some info on my granted whv application form are incorrect. Im from northern ireland and hold an irish passport but the section when it asks nationality of passport holder ive stated ireland instead of british? and it then ask whether i have lived outside of the rep of ireland for more than 3 months ive stated no when infact i live in northern ireland! I'm panicing now incase i am refused enter to oz. I can't get in contact with the visa office both in london and oz as it is a bank holiday and im leaving on tuesday-- what will i do? do they read your online application form at the airport or how detailed is the visa checking proceedure, will immigration just have a quick look. Somebody please advise!!!

Irish nationality extends to those born in Northern Ireland, so presumably your Irish passport indicates you're an Irish citizen? If so, that one isn't an issue - you are likely both British and Irish.

I sincerely doubt this will cause you any problems. Just be sure to take the passport that matches the passport number you entered when applying for the visa :)
